Well, I have never seen a real bird fly like that TED bird (so slow). Granted it is gracious and beautiful and looks real nice indoor, but to me it doesn't resemble the flying of a real bird. Also the wingflap is not realistic. Real birds don't flap the outside part of the wing down further then the inside part, but it makes a kind of rowing action. The TED bird flies like a bird in a cartoon or documentary (where footage is slowed down to make it look nicer).
Furthermore the dutch DIY guy was 2 years earlier, without a reseach team and substantial budget.

If someone were to offer me the choise between the two, I'd take the dutch diy bird, but everyone is entitled to his own opinion :-)
